GARCON de POMPOM
Kayal Boatswain

Garcon de Pompom
right-aligned image
Name:Garcon de Pompom
Alignment: Neutral
Class: Warlord
Profession: Boatswain
Race: meaning Shadow-people, in akloKayal aka. Fletchling
Traits: Unorthodox Method
Reason for Arrival: Sea-dog
Deity: Sophiism

 


Description: Pale as ivory and lithe as a snake, this shadow-dweller stands erect and square-shouldered, a half-haughty expression on his chiseled face. The dusky-white hair hangs in a tousled pan around his head, with a sharp undercut to make it stand out and show the Linnorm tattooed at the back of his head. His eyes set him very much apart. Large oval globes with no pupil, so the butter-yellow iris looks that much larger. His white teeth form a grinning smile framed by thin, light coral-red lips.

The Kayal wears his seaman’s clothing with a trained eye for the latest Julianople high society fashion tendencies. A lemon-yellow silken shirt tugs tightly to his sinewy, hairless chest while blue fresh-water pearls adorn earlobes, neck, and wrist. Leather britches with silver embroidery cover long, slender legs, and extravagant scarlet-dyed calf-skin boots with a little extra heel to make this sailor look just a few inches higher.

Wherever Garcon goes, his fresh green scent of freshly cut meadows mixed with recent spring rain comes with him. It is a pleasantly cool and relaxing sensation to be close to him. His pale skin is soft and without wrinkles or creases, slightly cooler than the average human temperature.

Name: Kofteró, Arní

AttributeStatCalculation
Strength75+2
Dexterity195+12+2
Constitution103+7
Intelligence86+2
Wisdom153+12
Charisma136+7

Alignment: True Neutral

Class: Gunslinger

Race: Accete

Traits & Drawback: Never Stop Shooting + Charming + Unlearned

Reason for Arrival: Explorer - You hail from a distant land. You have been travelling the world for an incredibly long time, earning what you can with odd jobs and weird work. It has made you physically hardy and you have garnered an incredibly eclectic wealth of knowledge and experience... except Languages. You always struggled with those. You financed yourself with odd jobs, so what's one more?
Benefit: Choose any class skill. You can replace this with any other two class skills of your choice and gain +1 to each of those skills. +2 to Survival. You only know one language at the beginning of the game and it CANNOT be Common (you can learn new languages by putting points into Linguistics or if your Intelligence modifier rises through level-up, as per the usual methods)

Personality: Arni is a stern looking woman. She does not express her emotions often, keeping them to herself. She is defensive of herself too, ready to point her weapon at anyone she deems a threat. Being in a city she's never seen before, she is constantly on alert, watching her back to make sure no one dares put her in danger. If anyone were to get close enough to her, she may become protective of them and, with even more time, may open up a bit, but she would need to know they are safe to her.

History:

Arni found herself in Julianople, after days of running. When she arrived, she noticed how everyone looked, so she rubbed sand onto her face to try to hide her skin. Communication was quite difficult, no one knowing her language, but she listened around to common conversation. After trying to connect words together, she made her way to a place called the Dead Mermaid Casino. With some difficult discussion, she somehow ended up with a job, moving things around the place. She was given clothes... weird ones... but she kept her old ones, as when she needed to, she would flee...


Three Trivia Tidbits
  • Arni's skin is the same texture as that of a seal or an orca - very rubbery and leathery to the touch.
  • Arni can somehow hide her gun very easily in her cleavage. How? I don't know, no one has journeyed down there and lived.
  • Arni is scared of lightning. She has been ever since she was a child, and lightning causes her to freak out.

@Lentil Sponge - thank you for the review. I've added it in my initial post, but will also post the additions below:

Garridan Arlowe
left-aligned image
Name: Garridan Arlowe

Alignment: Lawful Good

Class: Investigator (Mastermind archetype)

Traits: Inspired

Hardly A Fool

Overprotective (Drawback)

Race: Human

Reason for Arrival: Local

Description:Asking someone to pick Garridan out of the crowd would be a challenge to most people, and frankly, that is exactly how he prefers it. Standing at just a little under five-seven, neither terribly tall nor hilariously-short enough to stand out. The private investigator’s nondescript brown hair, neatly-parted down the middle, covers his ears and almost touches the rim of a pair of round-rimmed glasses, tinted just enough to hide both who or what he may be looking at exactly, and the piercing emerald-green gaze hidden beneath him. While most people would consider the human rather handsome, with a strong jawline, high cheekbones and a rather wide mouth that looked quite pleasant the few times he smiled, the collar of his coat was often pulled up against his cheek, keeping most of his features out of view unless one was up-close. The coat is the one constant of the former intelligence officer’s wardrobe, dark brown and quite battered, resembling a military greatcoat but with any identifying insignia removed. Garridan doesn’t carry any overt weaponry on him, usually only accompanied by an umbrella.

Ribi
left-aligned image
Name: Ribi

Stats:
Race: RatfolkAttributes
Strength 6
Dexterity 19
Constitution 11
Intelligence 17
Wisdom 14
Charisma 5

Alignment: Neutral

Class: Alchemist (Vivisectionist or Chirurgeon depending on the party composition)

Race: Ratfolk

Traits: Iron Liver , Gifted Smuggler , Paranoid (Drawback)

Reason for Arrival: Scholar


Description: Ribi appears much as the linked image though generally wears more clothing in a style that is at first glance somewhat tattered, much closer inspection would reveal deliberate cuts and restitching to allot for myriad makeshift pouches. What would be an otherwise aesthetic frame is deeply disrupted by her oft disheveled appearance. She is diminutive in stature and build with nary a muscle to be seen.

Her fur is a slightly off-white with a full head of white-gray hair that appears to be quite well groomed, diminished by the wafting scent of some kind of chemical agent she is awash in.

Personality: Ribi is not an easy woman to get along with, she is incredibly blunt in her interactions with others and does not hold other's feelings to be of great import over the truth of matters. While she can certainly understand how others around her feel to some degree her concern is far more focused on being honest in every dealing she can do so without immanent danger.

She will also readily make her feelings known if it seems relevant to the situation where generally decorum and holding feelings at bay or playing them close to the chest is the winning move. It is not that she holds no awareness that these actions may not be the best, rather that she simply values that honest expression and perpetuation of the self significantly over niceties and the general falseness of pleasing those around you to further your ends.

Somewhat paradoxically, as open as she is comfortable being she is also mistrustful at best of most individuals motives around her. She is very slow to form lasting connections and even seems to steer away from them where possible but once those barriers are surpassed by an individual it would be noted she can hold to a very high degree of loyalty.



History: Ribi grew up in a Ratfolk warren in the city, raised like many Ratfolk are by the whole of their community more so than just simply their mother and father. Her father was present through her life working as an academic at the university and her mother was present as a caravan member selling wares and acquiring interesting goods until shortly before Ribi reached the age of adulthood when she was tragically lost to a monster devouring her on one of the many caravan trips she set out on. Ribi was seen as odd from a young age by many in the warren, frequently trying to wriggle her way out of the myriad boisterous social events and rather interconnected social reality of the Ratfolk given the extremely dense population of the warren.

She held some acquaintances and partook as was expected of her in Ratfolk society until around when her mother died when she was 10, this is when Ribi started to become far more insistent in her desire to find solitude and focus on her individual desires as well as growing more distant from even those she may have called companions before her mother's death. In their consolations she felt ever more confined and began to develop a paranoia in relation to closeness and aid offered by others. By the time she reached adulthood she had become known through the warren as someone with a very blunt and driven personality, surly enough to try to leave to her own devices, even with this fraction of breathing room granted by her curmudgeonly disposition the reality of the densely packed warren meant there was still very little in the way for moments of solitude.

As soon as she was old enough she began apprenticing under an alchemist in the city and spent a great deal of her free time pouring over what information she could salvage in the public libraries of the city and the very limited access she could scrounge in the University library on account of her Father's position as a historian. As her apprenticeship concluded and she could claim herself as a full alchemist in her own right she sought opportunities for escape from the confines of the warren and furthering her education in Alchemy. With her training she was still several years off from the funds necessary to apply to the university nor was she far enough into meaningful breakthroughs in her own research. She could only get so much with the limited access she had to the University libraries so she began concocting a scheme to help accelerate matters, during one of her visits to the university library she came upon information regarding some of the research of a great Alchemist from The Lawless City. Scraping together what funds she had built up doing odd work here and there as an alchemist she managed one last visit to the university before absconding with key pages from that journal of research and throwing every bit of wealth she had acquired into making her way to The Lawless City.

Unique Goal:

Three Trivia Tidbits (optional):
  • Despises most large gatherings and will drink to at least a buzz commonly to get through them when required
  • Deeply prefers colder climes
  • Has a bit of a romantic streak, though like most interpersonal interactions she downplays this out of a desire for her individual expression and an excess in paranoia.

Ok, so, you guys all made it very difficult, thanks to a lot of huge improvements and last minute amazing apps but I have managed to choose the second party.

Player Character Alignment Race Class Reason for Hire
Optional Reality Signe Fairhair Chaotic Good Human Skald (Totemic & Urban) Gladiator
Exhibit A Kotram Deepiron True Neutral Dwarf Bard (Dwarven Scholar) Reformed Mercenary
Fyre2387 Rashirr Chaotic Neutral Catfolk Brawler (Snakebite Striker) Gladiator
Krow Nest Arni Koftero True Neutral Accete Gunslinger Explorer
DoubleL1987 Garridan Arlowe Lawful Good Human Investigator Local
Mollyscoid Ribi True Neutral Ratfolk Alchemist Scholar

Honestly, this was a nightmare to decide. There are at least three players who I was rolling dice for to decide if they were in or not, and if one of the players from Group A or Group B drops out, they will certainly be getting a private message.

But as for everyone else, I will send you a link to the game shortly.
